and beltway bell weather david brooks, writing in the "new york times," brooks said avoiding a debt default is the mother of all no-brainers for the gop. the struggles of the next few weeks are about what sort of party the gop is, a normal conservative party or an odd protest movement that separated itself from the habits of our nation. if reasonable republicans don't take control, independents will conclude the republican fanaticism caused this default and conclude republicans are not fit to govern, and they'll be right. it appears we don't need a few weeks to see which way the gop will tilt. we had a good sense of it this afternoon. here's john cornan on. >> the president is not listening to the same people i'm listening to, my constituents. it seems disingenuous to say we're going to cut spending but also going to raise taxes. we're not for raising taxes through the front door or through the back door. i would say it's premature to declare who's being reasonable and not. >> here's house budget paul ryan on a conservative radio show. >> if you take a deal like this, you're requiring tax r

international rebecca brooks will be there. a summons came from parliament and it was communicated through prime minister cameron's office today. did rupert and james bow to that pressure? it is interesting because -- >> first they said they were not going to go. is that right? ? then all of a sudden after the formal request came, that's when they turned around and 1ed they would. at first they said they weren't going next tuesday. >> they would. it is interesting to look at time line of what's been happening on the u.s. regulatory side along side what is going on here in britain. we have senators coming out and saying that department of justice and sec should be launching an inquiry. we have representative peter king should launch an inquiry, which we know now is happening. a lot of that came out last night. some is coming to fruition. because rupert and james murdoch were were here, if they were summoned, they could not resist that. this is the country where he runs those media assets in question. but yet he would be required to show his face in the u.s. so, the common disdense of those two ac

brooks, in a heated discussion with her staff. talk about irony. we'll have it for you. >>> that these people could have had their phones hacked into in order to generate stories for a newspaper is simply disgusting. i cannot think what was going through the minds of the people who did this, but this scandal is not just about some journalists on one newspaper. it's not even just about the press. it's also about the police, and yes, it's also about how politics works and about politicians too. >> british prime minister david cameron vows to leave no stone unturned in the scandal involving "news of the world" tabloid. murdoch is reportedly flying to london tomorrow. three men were arrested today in connection with the scan doll. andy coulson was detained this morning on conspiracy and corruption allegations. also arrested, formal royal editor, clive goodman, he already spent four months in jail in '07. both coulson and goodman have been released on bail. british police also arrested a 63-year-old male in connection with the phone hacking, but his identity has not been rel
," and that woman was the editor at the time rebekah brooks, and now there is question about the sincerity of their relationship. and jay, as we hear more about this, it is disturbing to see if this is true the motivation behind it. >> yeah, absolutely, thomas. always good to talk to you, and there is new outrage tonight. the latest nurn t eest turn in investigation has revealed that sarah payne, the mother of the 8-year-old girl was a victim of the hacking scandal and initially not thought to be on the list of phones who had been hacked, but a closer look shows that payne's voice mails had been listened to by a representative of the "news of the world" tabloid, and the newspaper was involved in the campaign for tougher child abduction laws and instrumental in the sarah's law named after the little girl. it was at that time that "news of the world" gave payne a cell phone and she said she considered then editor rebekah brooks a friend, and wrote an editorial in the final edition of the tabloid saying quote the news of the world and more importantly the people there became my very good and
that far. but earlier today rebekah brooks was arrested in connection with the "news of the world" investigation. brooks is of course the former editor of the paper. and until friday she was the chief executive of news international, which is a british wing of murdoch's newscorp. now, police initially announced just a few hours ago that a 43-year-old woman had been arrested, being questioned on suspicion of conspiring into thear september communications and suspicion of corruption who we learned related to rebekah broo brooks. those related to phone hacking and bribes. she voluntarily attended a police station to assist in the investigation in what was a prearranged appointment. it does not seem, however -- it does seem, rather, that the arrest came as a bit of a surprise to her. now, her arrest comes today when news international had given another full-page apology in british newspapers here, stating that they would fully cooperate with the police and that there was nowhere to hide those who had done any misdoings. this comes just two days before rebekah brooks and rupert murdoch

-read opinion pages. we're going to start with "the new york times" by david brooks. it's entitled congress in the lead. are you ready? >> yeah. >>> tina, you said after you saw the speech, you thought it was dated. david brooks saying "behind the times" like he's a step behind. >> i do think that the republicans seem to be winning this. simply being so absolutely unreasonable and so willing to be irresponsible that it seems to be working. that's a terrible thing for obama. he's left as the grown-up in the room. a grown-up who concedes everything. now left only with the six month thing to say no to. and he's going to have to say yes to that because he's going to go to default. he's going to go the next six months campaigning about an issue he didn't frame right in the first time. so it's a real problem for obama. >> what we need here is one of the ronald reagan moments where the president said i will veto this bill. if john boehner sends me a temporary extension that will not calm the markets, i will veto that bill. he didn't do it last night. curious to see the follow-up conversations toda

.com and "washington post" columnist e.j. dijon. he's a senior fellow at the brookings institution. e.j., the office of management and budget has come out and weighed in against cut, cap and trade saying that neither setting arbitrary spending levels nor amending the constitution is necessary to restore fiscal responsibility. your thoughts on this. you've written extensively about it. what do you think? >> i think the so-called balanced budget amendment, because it's not even that, is one of the most dishonest pieces of legislation to come along. i know that saying something here in washington, it's a way of cutting your big three and a lot of other programs without actually doing it. if you'll forgive the harry potter metaphor it throws a cloak over the cuts, but if wants to limit federal spending to 18% of gdp. first of all, since when is gdp a constitutional principle? in fact, it would probably be less than that if if it were calculated on the previous year, because you don't know what gdp would be the next year. that would be 16%. that would require incredible cuts. meanwhile, it will virtually
